Is Buddy Ryan for real? Can it be possible that a head football coach would say the things that Mr. Ryan is quoted in the newspapers as saying? If it is, what is the point? Why would a coach in his right mind expose a player to public humiliation when he could just as well direct criticism to the player in private? Buddy Ryan was not hired for his mouth. He was hired to win games for the Eagles. I do not see how blasting players in public is going to help win games. Most players, I suspect, would hate the guy's guts.

THERE WAS a time once when Doug Pederson was a little miffed at Andy Reid. A career backup tutored by Don Shula in Miami and Paul Holmgren in Green Bay, understudy to Dan Marino and Brett Favre, Pederson was lured to Philadelphia by his old Packers quarterbacks coach with the assurance that he would finally get a chance to start a full season. That chance was aborted after a 2-7 start, Pederson giving way to the rookie he was brought in to groom, Donovan McNabb. When the season ended, Pederson left to be a starter for Cleveland, where a similar fate awaited.

The death of a 14-year-old Bucks County boy, hit by a car on a busy Doylestown Township road Saturday night, was "a tragic accident" that probably won't warrant criminal charges, police said Monday. Steven Kim, a quarterback on Central Bucks High School West's freshman football team, was hit as he attempted to cross Easton Road with two friends on skateboards around 10:45 p.m., Police Chief Dean Logan said. The driver of the 2004 Mercury Sable, 47-year-old Patricia Norris of Philadelphia, didn't see the boy until "the last second," Logan said.

The wins have come at such a mind-numbing pace for Clyde Folsom at West Deptford that many don't realize the monumental task he faced when taking over as head football coach in 1991. This was as good a time as any to reflect on the successful regime after Folsom reached another milestone Friday night, when West Deptford beat Collingswood, 34-7, in a Colonial Conference Liberty Division game. For Folsom it was his 200th win at West Deptford, making him 200-59-2. During his first coaching job he went 34-11-3 and won three consecutive South Jersey championships at Bishop Eustace.

What was supposed to be the easy opening week of Rutgers football, a soft start for the Scarlet Knights Saturday against Norfolk State, has turned into maybe the darkest chapter yet for an athletic department that specializes in setting itself on fire. This seems to be the real cost of joining the Big Ten, of trying to be big time. The latest Rutgers headline: Five Rutgers players are arrested. The details are ugly. An allegedly unprovoked assault by four players. A fifth player and a former player charged in home invasions and armed robberies.

In East Falls, atop a hill that crests after a tenth-of-a-mile slope of dirt-pocked grass and fissured white pavement blotched with black tar, rests the Abbotsford Homes housing project. Rasheed Bailey lived at Abbotsford until he was 18, as did his best friend and classmate at Roxborough High School, Rashawn Anderson. But it wasn't until someone shot and killed Anderson outside his house on the night of Feb. 7, 2011, that Bailey recognized his own deep desire to leave Abbotsford.
